2024 Fall Registration is Open!

Click here to register.

Welcome to the Fall Ball League of DGYB.  Our Fall Ball age divisions are different from our Spring Season divisions. The Fall 2024 baseball age is the player's age as of August 31, 2024.

6 and 7 year-olds will use Rookie League Fields and will be a combination of coach pitch and player pitch. This level is NOT appropriate for those entering Kindergarten- birth certificates are required at the first practice for new players.

8 and 9 year-olds will play together using AA fields (65' bases, 46' mound). 10 and 11 year-olds will use AAA fields (70' bases, 48' mound), and 12 and 13 year-olds will use a Prep 13 field (80' bases and 54' mound).



  • We play games only on Saturdays and Sundays. In 2024, the season runs September 7 through October 13 with practices starting the week of August 26.
  • Generally two practices a week until games start, one during the week and the other on the weekend.
  • Once games start, practices are once a week, during early evening as daylight permits.
  • Fall fields are McCollum, Randall, and Gilbert Parks, and El Sierra, Hillcrest, Kingsley and Indian Trail Schools
  • Registration closes August 16, and coaches will contact you through email with team, practice and game information by August 23.


  • Registration for Fall Ball 2024 is to be completed on-line via our secure website hosted by SportsEngine, by August 16, 2024.
  • Please complete each section of the form.
  • To support our mission, each player and parent/guardian must review and agree to the established Code of Conduct and Waiver provided in this registration form.
  • DGYB is a 100% volunteer organization and relies on the dedication of our families. Please consider selecting Volunteer opportunities of your interest. Our players would not have a program without the efforts of all of our members.  We are extremely grateful for your support to DGYB.
  • Visa, MasterCard, or Discover payments are accepted. Online payments only. Please no OFFLINE orders. Thank you.

Play Ball,

DGYB Board of Directors

The DGYB Board of Directors held the annual General Membership meeting on Thursday, May 2nd 7PM at The Perfect Swing 8251 Lemont Rd, Darien 60561. Chairman Justin Miller  delivered state of the program remarks. Director Jim Sharwarko  reviewed the current financial state of the organization.  League President and Nominating Committee Chair Rob Rooney supervised the election of officers. For 2024 both Vice-Chair and Treasurer are on the ballot.  Unfortunately no candidate for Vice-Chair became available. Jim Sharwarko was re-elected by those present to be Treasurer for another 2-year term ending in Spring 2026. Many Thanks to Jim and his family for his many years of service to the community. DGYB consistently provides a fun and enjoyable recreational baseball experience for families in our community. Your feedback is vital to helping the organization better serve the participants.

Thank You for your support!
